Gutsy winds tossed about fifty White-browed Woodswallows over home on the morning of September 29th. I've had very little to do with these birds over the years. They were my first WBWs for the Southern Highlands and species 140 for home. They're striking things up close. Their call is the call of a sparrow on steroids. On another note, Rufous Whistlers and Shining Bronze-cuckoos are back. I heard a few near the sewage treatment plant yesterday. Now for the Dollarbirds, Common Koels, Channel-billed Cuckoos and Black-faced Monarchs... LJ, October 3 2012.
